Wabi-Sabi Ink Painting w/ SHERRIE LOVLER
October 23 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm
Allow your hand and imagination free play as you work with ink and watercolor on paper to create abstract paintings in this East meets West workshop.
Beginning with meditation and centering ourselves, we will get our whole body involved as we work from the heart to paint the ensō (the Zen practice of drawing a circle). Our guiding themes will be wabi-sabi: appreciating the beauty of imperfection, empty space: allowing the painting to breathe and qi: the living energy of the painting.
From the West, we will work with line, color, shape, movement, rhythm and other elements and principles of design. Here, our guiding themes will be value and contrast. The conversation with our pages will be “What is already happening, and what do I do next?”
Embrace the unknown as we explore abstract painting from both Eastern and Western perspectives to create several finished paintings. No art experience is needed.
